Thriving - was that an appropriate February word? Bare and brownish-grey it was living its annual season of dormancy; it was winter-thriving. Growth and development seemed lacking, but its energy was being conserved for the beauty of the summer and fall tree it was becoming.
A few weeks ago, I paused over John 4:6 and following,
... so Jesus, wearied as he was from his journey,
was sitting beside the well.
Jesus was weary - he sat down.
Jesus was thirsty - he asked for a drink.
Jesus was alert - to the needs of others.
August is the annual month of dormancy for Echoes of Grace.
This writer is a bit weary from the journey of the past year.
She is thirsty and asking for a bit of rest, renewal, and rejuvenation.
And truly, even during August, our month at our sanctuary, I hope to be alert to needs.
Like our Aspen tree, I need a season of dormancy.
Echoes of Grace will return Thursday, September 3.
And my God will supply every need of your according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
